An excellent add-on for my motorcycle forum to help users find rides and events to attend!
Strong in its simplicity. Great addon with basic functionality. Some feature requests here and there, but Andy is always quick in response and really tries to move himself into your situation/request.
I wanted a basic calendar and this fully serves my purpose. I very highly recommend it. Thanks to Andy!
Great Add-on.
Any change it would be minor to add a year break? So it's very visible when an event starts on a different year.
That was fast! I asked about Recurring last night, and already added! Love the fast service.
Brilliant plugin.
Used since XF1 and it works great!
Author is very responsive to questions!
Love it! Been using it for years, glad to see it updated for 2.0
